Zenith STOL CH 801
The Zenith STOL CH 701 and CH 750 are a family of light, two place aircraft designed by Canadian aeronautical engineer Chris Heintz through his
Midland, Ontariobased company, Zenair. The CH 701 first flew in 1986 and the design is still in production in 2008.Kitplanes Staff: "2008 Kit Aircraft Directory", page 80, Kitplanes Magazine December 2007 Volume 24, Number 12, Belvior Publications, Aviation Publishing Group LLC.] The CH 750 was first introduced in 2008. cite web|url = http://www.zenithair.com/stolch750/index.html|title = STOL CH 750|accessdate = 2008-08-09|last = Zenith Aircraft Company |authorlink = |year = 2008|month = July]
The kit is produced and distributed in the USA by the
Zenith Aircraft Company, and complete drawings (blueprints and manuals) are also available for the design.
Several distributors modify existing kits into so called quick-build kits.
In Europe, the CH 701 was manufactured under license by
Czech Aircraft Works(CZAW) from 1992 until 2006, when the license agreement was ended.
Raht-Asemanproduces an aircraft designated Fajr-22 which appears to be identical to the CH 701 [http://www.janes.com/extracts/extract/jawa/jawa5333.html] .
Designed for off-runway operations, the CH 701 has many unique features, such as a high-lift wing with full-span, non-movable leading edge slats (also known as slots), an all flying
rudder, large tires, flaperonsand an inverted elevator, that contribute to the aircraft's STOLcapabilities. Heintz also designed a unique tricycle gear amphibious float system for the CH 701.
The STOL CH 701 has the unique distinction of being what is probably the most copied light aircraft in production today. Several dozen unauthorized versions have been produced around the world [ cite web|url = http://www.zenithair.com/stolch701/7-photo-copies.html|title = STOL CH701|accessdate = 2007-12-06|last = Zenith Aircraft Company|authorlink = |year = undated]
